Look What I Did!
So, y’all know that, admittedly, I’m not a very good crafter. I love handlettering these files, and I love seeing them in use, but I suck at crafting. I’m impatient, I don’t like the mess, and I will probably not ever wear this thing, except to have a few pictures taken. It’s just not my style – I like a tanktop way more, and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t order tank blanks instead.
That said, I do feel especially connected with this design. As an inked up gal, I’m no stranger to the looks and unsolicited opinions of those around me. I’ve even had women pull their kids closer as if I was going to snatch them. Don’t worry, ladies. I’ve got five kids of my own, and they can attest to the fact that my flower tattoos are rather non-threatening. Imagine me rolling my eyes, because that’s exactly what I’m doing right now.
Anyway, this project was my second time working with heat transfer vinyl (HTV). Remember that tote bag project where I had to use glitter HTV? Turns out, I did have HTV that wasn’t glitter but I just forgot about it and didn’t realize that’s what the black roll and white roll were sitting on top of my vinyl rack. Whoops.
This was my first time working with a shirt, though. Like I said, I’m a pretty crappy crafter, y’all. I’m not even gonna lie, I’m working with this stuff more as a proof of concept / proof that it works / proof that my files look cute on stuff. There is nothing fancy going on here and I’m certainly not taking it seriously.
I didn’t measure this shit out or anything. I literally held the shirt up in the bathroom mirror to get a good idea of where I should start to place the file. I’m pretty sure there’s a better way to do this, and maybe mark the shirt with chalk or something so that you don’t lose your spot. Me? I just used my Apple Pencil because it was the closest not black thing I could find. I eyeballed it to center it, and ironed that thing on with my little Cricut mini thing (this is becoming a technical term).
What’s Included in Your Digital Download?
Uhh, plenty! Each file set that you purchase from me includes the .svg, .ai, .dxf, .png, and .pdf file format. That means that they’re going to be compatible with cutting machines, as well as other software. I’m a Cricut user, so I automatically for the the .svg file because that’s the one that’s going to give me the easiest & best experience – all you have to do is select the file, and then upload to your cutting software. For Cricut, it’s called Cricut Design Space.
Silhouette Cameo users can also use these. Silhouette Studio is the software you need, and .png or .dxf file formats are recommended.
Even if you don’t have a cutting machines handy, you can upload to a print company’s website to design your own apparel or decor. I would recommend the .png file for that, as it has a transparent background and will allow you to overlay it onto a shirt with no weird boxy looking background.
If you’ve got software handy like Adobe Illustrator, you could import the .ai file to work with it, and do things like change colors, or make some additions / other swaps!
As a reminder, personal use and commercial use are permitted! That means you can use them to make cute shirts for yourself, gift them to a friend, or even start racking up sales by starting your own business! Since this is a digital download, no physical item is shipped to you!
